Upcoming India-Australia ODI series: Aussies nervous

Australia’s ODI captain Aaron Finch on Monday warned the batsmen of his side to be ready for some shake-ups ahead of the series against India following their lackluster showing recently against South Africa.

“We’re all under pressure when we lose, no doubt about that,” admitted Finch, hinting at possible changes in the batting line-up ahead of the forthcoming series against India in January.

“Between the batting line-up not having got it right for a little while now there’s going to be questions asked whether it’s Maxi (Glenn Maxwell), Lynny (Chris Lynn), Heady (Travis Head), or myself or (Marcus) Stoin,” he said.

Finch said Australia need to find balance in their batting line-up ahead of the important series against India.

“We have to either adapt our game plan a little bit around the way the side structures up best or we slightly change our personnel to fit a style that we think can win.

Team India opener Rohit Sharma feels that team India must bring along the confidence when they tour Australia after whitewashing the recently concluded three-match T20I series against West Indies.

India defeated Windies in Tests (2-0), ODIs (3-1) and T20Is (3-0) but the road ahead gets tough.

Rohit said the upcoming tour of Australia will be a completely “different ball-game” and India must take confidence from the 3-0 win.
